I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if Odell Beckham had been inspired by jiu-jitsu wizard Demian Maia and not former UFC lightweight champion, Conor McGregor. Would his Marlon Humphrey fight have ended by way of armbar?
Hard to say, but the Cleveland Browns wide receiver looked completely helpless on the ground while Humphrey attempted to choke him into oblivion, not unlike the times “Notorious” was caught in a similar position and “gave up.”
“I’m just upset I lost my earring,” Beckham told reporters after the Browns 40-25 win over the Baltimore Ravens.
“I ran into him after the game and apologized,” Humphrey insisted. “It’s not really the brand of football I want to represent. The whistle blowed. It has to be over with.”
Here’s another look:
Marlon Humphrey and Odell were going at it like Norman and Odell did back in 2015! LMAO! pic.twitter.com/yeZtwfEAVv— #BusinessAintBoomin (@ftbeard_17) September 30, 2019
It should be noted that Beckham snuck in a punch to the throat before getting taken to the ground and since UFC has no problem signing former NFL players, we know “OBJ” has a potential cage-fighting career waiting for him upon his gridiron retirement.
